Cholesterol – Lipid Profile
This is a detailed measurement of the fats in your blood. The lipid profile consists of measuring the Total Cholesterol, HLD (good), LDL (bad), and Triglycerides. The (BCEP) “National Cholesterol Education Program” recommends a complete lipid profile every 6 weeks until goals are met, then every 3 to 6 months. (overnight fasting is recommended for triglycerides)
Glucose – Diabetes
This is a measure of the sugar level in the blood. If you are overweight or have a family history of diabetes, glucose levels should be checked periodically. There are millions of people that go undetected each year for diabetes. Diabetes is a comorbidity of (OSA) Obstructive Sleep Apnea and 50% of diabetics may benefit from a sleep study.
Blood Pressure – (hypertension)
This is a measurement of your blood pressure. Blood pressure readings fall into four general categories, ranging from normal to stage 2 hypertension (high blood pressure). The level of your blood pressure determines what kind of treatment you may need.
Body Fat Composition
This is a measurement of your lean to fat ratio and your goal should be to increase the lean pounds and lose fat pounds, not just to lose total weight.
Just looking at a scale does not always tell you what is in those pounds. While weight is important to many, a better measure of how healthy and fit you are is “Body Composition”, or the ratio of lean muscle to fat.
Resting Heart Rate
An average adult’s resting heart rate ranges from 60 to 80 beats per minute. The best time to take your resting heart rate is before you get out of bed in the morning, after a good night’s sleep. In general, more physically active people have lower resting heart rates.
Waist circumference is the distance around your natural waist (just above the navel). A waist measurement of 35 inches or more for women or 40 inches or more for men indicates an increased risk of obesity-related conditions, such as heart disease.
Height & Weight
Height in Feet & Inches
Weight in Lean Pounds & Fat Pounds
Body Mass Index (BMI)
This is a measurement and calculation of your weight and height to determine if excess weight may be a health risk. BMI is a fairly reliable indicator of body fatness for most people. Calculating BMI is one of the best methods to assess if you are overweight or obesity is an issue for you.
Bone Mineral Density (BMD)
Osteoporosis – often called the “silent disease” is potentially painful and a crippling disease. Osteoporosis affects 23 million American women, 75% do not even know they have it. Lynmar uses ultrasound, a safe and radiation-free technology, to estimate the bone density of the heel.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)
Sleep Apnea is the chronic interruption of breathing during sleep. This program provides a screening for comorbidities of sleep apnea such as lipid profile, glucose, hypertension, obesity, BMI, and OSA sleep questionnaire. Alarmingly, about 80% of people with sleep apnea are unidentified and untreated.
The Omega-3 index is a blood test that measures the amount of omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) in the red blood cells (RBC) membranes. Omega-3 fatty acids are essential fats – the body can’t make them but must get them from foods or supplements. People with low omega-3 levels have a 10-fold higher risk for sudden cardiac death compared to people with high omega-3 status.
This is a simple, fast, and accurate blood sample with on-site results in about 10 minutes. An A1C test result reflects an average blood sugar level (blood glucose concentration) over the previous 2-3 months. It tells how well sugar levels are being controlled. These A1C values are not subject to the fluctuations that are seen with daily blood glucose monitoring.
Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA)
This test is used primarily to screen for prostate cancer in men. The test measures the levels of total prostate-specific antigen in the blood. PSA is a protein produced by the prostate, a gland that sits below the bladder and circles the urethra. Our on-site method of collecting blood is by finger stick. The blood sample is sent to lab for testing and test results are mailed directly to the patient. Expect to receive PSA results within one week.
Nicotine – Oral Fluid Screening – Cotinine (COT)
Cotinine is the first-stage metabolite of nicotine, a toxic alkaloid that stimulates\the autonomic ganglia and central nervous system in humans. Our on-site screening Cotinine Test Devise is a rapid, oral fluid screening test. The test results are completed within 10 minutes of administering the test. The window of detection for cotinine in saliva is expected to be up to 1-4 days after nicotine use.
